Maybe It Wasn't All Bad
Crabcake Seahorse lived in the ocean for many years but grew tired of the intrusive neighbors. There’s just no privacy here, he told himself as yet another school of fish swam by and nosed around his cave. Crabcake crawled up onto a rocky shore and began building himself a cozy little house. Some land creatures approached, but as soon as they saw Crabcake’s stern expression they retreated and let him be. Crabcake finished his dwelling and moved in. It was very quiet. Crabcake missed the way sound carried in the ocean. He used to listen to conversations from miles away.
